Volunteers are an integral and valued part of our team at Carefor Hospice Cornwall.
We offer specialized training in all areas. All volunteers are required to have a valid police check on file to work within our organization. They also must take part in a Palliative Care Course, given by a registered health care professional. This course covers all aspects of end-of-life care and how it pertains to volunteering at Hospice.
We have teams of volunteers who assist in many ways:
- Front Desk Reception
- Music Therapy
- Kitchen Helper
- Nurse’s Assistant (non-medical)
- Palliative Day Program
- Volunteer Visiting
